Tips for Students Going Back to College

Student Summer Self StorageThe start of the new school year will be here soon. For many college students, this will be their first time moving into the dorms or living off-campus. Here are some tips to make your move easy, and to save you some money.

Moving into a Dorm

If the school provides you with your new roommate’s contact information, contact them so you can decide which items you plan to bring to help save space and money. A mini-fridge, microwave, rugs, lamps, or shelving units are most common items students bring into dorms. Speak with your roommate to see if they already have some of these or items, or if they would like to share the cost.

Moving into an Apartment

Whether you will be living with a friend, or someone you have never met, furnishing an apartment can be costly. It is a good idea to make a list of the items you will need to furnish your apartment and see what everyone already has. It is also a great idea to speak with your parents and family members to see if they are willing to part with any of their household items. Once you have found all of the items you will need, A-1 Self Storage can help with tips on how to easily pack and move your items.
